“House Of The Dragon” Is The Most Anticipated New Series of 2022, According to IMDb

“House of the Dragon” is the most anticipated series of 2022, according to IMDb. The new HBO show is a prequel to the critically acclaimed fantasy drama Game of Thrones, which concluded in 2019. “House of Dragon” was created by George R.R. Martin and Ryan J. Condal and is based on George R.R. Martin’s 2018 novel, Fire & Blood, which narrates the story of the Targaryen family. Paddy Considine, Emma D’Arcy, Olivia Cooke, Matt Smith, and Rhys Ifans star in the prequel series.

House of the Dragon, set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, will primarily focus on the collapse of the Targaryens by detailing the events leading up to the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons, as well as the accompanying bloodshed. The series will introduce a slew of new characters, including dragonrider King Viserys Targaryen (Considine), his firstborn daughter Princess Rhaenyra (D’Arcy), and his younger brother Prince Daemon (Smith). Ser Otto Hightower (Ifans) is the present Hand of the King, and his daughter is the lovely Lady Alicent (Cooke).

“House of the Dragon” is now the most anticipated series of the coming year, according to IMDb’s recently released list. The ranking is compiled using page views from the site’s more than 200 million monthly users. Along with the Game of Thrones prequel, Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series and Hulu’s Pam & Tommy round out the top three. Take a look at the top ten list below:

1. House of the Dragon

2. The Lord of the Rings

3. Pam & Tommy

4. The Sandman

5. The Last of Us

6. Obi-Wan Kenobi

7. She-Hulk

8. Ms. Marvel

9. Peacemaker

10. Moon Knight

Surprisingly, The Batman, another desired Warner Bros. property, topped IMDb’s list of the most awaited movies of 2022. The final season of Game of Thrones premiered in May of 2019, finishing off a critically panned final season, but it hasn’t dampened fans’ love for the program as a whole. Not only has “House of Dragon” risen to the top of IMDb’s most anticipated series list, but HBO is also developing a number of prequels, including a Dunk & Egg spin-off based on Martin’s novellas.

With its marketing effort, HBO has shown competence at raising expectations for “House of Dragon”, but they are now faced with the same difficulty that their flagship series had: delivering on that hype. Many fans were dissatisfied with how their favorite characters’ journeys concluded in Game of Thrones’ last season, leading to a petition calling for the show’s eighth season to be redone with new writers. When “House of the Dragon” premieres next year, HBO certainly doesn’t want to see it meet the same fate.
